Thierry Henry Meets Fans at Tommy Hillfiger Store

Thierry Henry greeted fans at Tommy Hilfiger's Paseo de Gracia store in Paris after charity competition. The footballer was at the store on Friday to talk about his charitable institution, ‘THe One 4 All Foundation’, and personally greet the winners of Tommy Hilfiger’s European ’14 Hours in the Footsteps of Thierry Henry’ competition. The competition, which kicked off at the end of September 2007, invited Tommy Hilfiger customers who have purchased the new Men’s Underwear Collection in selected retailers across Europe, to share the 14 things they would most like to do in Barcelona – a number that makes playful reference to Thierry’s number 14 soccer shirt. he winners of the competition received a once-in-a-lifetime tour of Barcelona’s hottest destinations, as chosen by Thierry. They were also given a unique opportunity to personally meet Thierry at the Paseo De Gracia store. The launch of this competition is one in a series of initiatives undertaken by Tommy Hilfiger and Thierry Henry. In December 2006, Tommy Hilfiger signed Thierry Henry, one of the world’s most successful and iconic sportsmen, to be an international brand ambassador in an endorsement agreement for Tommy Hilfiger men’s formal wear and underwear. “I am delighted to have partnered with Tommy Hilfiger,” said Thierry Henry. “It’s always great to have the chance to mix with the Barcelona fans who made me feel so welcome here and meet the competition winners.” “My designs were influenced by the grace and charisma of Thierry Henry, a supreme athlete and an amazing man – each garment in his Capsule Collection captures a little of his spirit,” said Tommy Hilfiger. “I am especially delighted that all profits from the Collection will be donated to Thierry’s charitable institution, ‘THe One 4 All Foundation’, helping him in his fight against racism and social inequality.” Thierry Henry also became the face of a Tommy Hilfiger advertising campaign for Spring and Fall ’07, which debuted in Europe, the United States, Asia and South America. Shot by renowned fashion photographer Nathaniel Goldberg, the campaign captured the relaxed elegance and debonair of the famed French forward and the Thierry Henry Capsule Collection he inspired – a limited edition Collection of tailoring, menswear, formal footwear and underwear geared toward discerning, fashion-conscious men. All sales profits are donated to Thierry’s charitable initiative, ‘THe One 4 All Foundation’. Our very own Kanu Nwankwo has his Kanu Heart Foundation, he and Thierry share a thing with charity and the leather ball. We are calling on more of our international stars to go into charity and help support the underprivileged few. They could do the same thing as Henry has done, that is promoting fashion as well as charity-killing 2 birds with one stone. Their care and support would go a long way.
